Specialties

Dr. Donald E Thomas Jr has the following 2 specialties

  • Rheumatology

    A rheumatologist is a physician who has received extensive training in diagnosing and treating rheumatic conditions. Rheumatic conditions involve the joints, soft tissues, autoimmune system, vascular system, and connective tissues.
    Some of the conditions that rheumatologists treat are rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout, sarcoidosis, vasculitis, and lupus. These are all conditions that involve a lot of pain and make mobility difficult. Rheumatologists use medications, such as analgesics, NSAIDs, steroids, DMARDs, infliximab, and adalimumab, as well as occupational therapy, in order to decrease pain and improve a patient's quality of life.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Great relief of back pain with epidural injections

A friend recommended Dr. Thomas to give me my epidural injections. I had horrible back and sciatica pain due to a herniated disk and I was afraid to get them after all the bad news in the papers. However, he was very kind, explained everything completely and made me feel very at ease. I couldn't believe how simple the procedure was and for the first time in months I was completely without pain! I recommend him highly!!!!

Five Stars

Dr. Thomas has been my doc for 5 years. He gives me knee cortisone injections better than anyone. I hardly feel them at all, and they get rid of my pain. Thanks!

HE IS ABSOLUTELY THE BEST

Doctors do not come any better than Dr. Thomas. In addition to his expertise, he actually listens to you (which is rare these days). He has never made me feel rushed. Unfortunately, I have to visit numerous doctors and I must say, there is no comparison when it comes to bed side manners. He cares about making your pain minimal and improving your quality of life. In rating him from 1 - 10, I give Dr. Thomas a 10 ++++

He saved my life from my gout!

I have severe gout, no doctors could get it under control and I was literally disabled from it. Dr. Thomas worked magic on me and I am so grateful. His staff is very friendly (Pammy at the counter is great!) and his assistants are very professional and courteous. He definitely surrounds himself with good people. I can not recommend him highly enough.
